Ladies and mens champion and junior ladies champion. There were many sports represented and some excellent athletes with world, European and British champiuons. The comittee decided that our senior team deserved the trophy this year because of our achivements at so many national and international tournaments including 6 British champions and a European champion among the many competition successes. Liz also won the senior ladies award. One she thoroughly deserves as she has won many titles this year, is world no 1. Liz is a fighter through and through and will always give her best for her sport and her team mates. Rob Payne took 2nd place in the senior men after an excellent year winning the British and European championships. Maggie also had recognition for her achivements and got 3rd place in the Junior female section. Great work people you deserve these awards for the sheer effort, spirit and dedication you put in to the sport, and there's plenty more where that came from!!

  • Irish open 2019
    We took a small team of 9 to the Irish open in Dublin. The biggest Kickboxing tournament on the calendar with 3,700 entries. Friday  saw the Teams, light con and Vets sections. George was up first joining a team with energise and other fighters. They had to take on the strong Barras team and George was up last. He started the fight 8 points down and was attacking all the time, but it was a difficult task to catch up. No progression this time, but a great warm up. Andy was up first and used his reverse punch to good effect moving on to the quarter finals. He then had a tough bout and despite some great reverse punching he was just outpointed in the end I had a litte outing on the mat as well. getting to the quarter finals. Harry was in the senior light contact section. He reached the semi final against a very tall and strong fighter. Harry started well.moving around and driving forward with flurries, but his opponents reach and long legs were hard to beat over 2 rounds. Harry had to settle for 3rd. Rory fought in the vets -74kg  and was using his timing and cool head to move through to the semi final. A tough bout against a Candian? but Rory took the fight with some nice reverse punches and drawing movements In the final he met our old training mate Darrell. A close fight in the first round,  The second round saw much of the same. Darrell managed to get5 his nose in front and  extended his lead to win his First Irish Open title and Rory got 2nd. Nicolle fought in her first Light contact bout and moved really well using combinations and footwork to make her point. Near the end of the bout Nicolle threw a punch and her opponent moved which meant she spun, but turned immediately to fight again. She was warned for turning , which I though was harsh and lost a point and the bout. Saturday was  adults points sections. Paige fought first and was on fire kicking and striking with power and accuracy that saw a 10 clear victory. In the qurter finals she could not reproduce her form and lost  by a couple of points. George was up next against an italian and despite hitting 4 scores in the first round that either one ref or another didn't register, one was a jumping back kick that dropped his opponent he lost the bout. One point was refused on the basis of it not being pulled back. I made a complaint to the chief referee and he confirmed that there is no rule in WAKO that states strikes have to be pulled back in the points division, but we keep coming up against this false ruling Nicolle entered the intermediate section and once again moved around the mat with skill. she was slipping kicks and scoring punches well. This brought her to the semin final…

  • GB Grand Slam Cannock
          Great work again from our team at the GB Grand slam in Cannock. Belle was up first in the pee wees section which, despite it's name had some high grade fighters. She lost her first bout agains a very good and experienced fighter,  but came back in on the repercharge type system and won her next two bouts. She met another very good fighter in the simi final and using superior tactics  of moving and then rushing attacks the fight was level.There was then a clash and I thought the refs gave her the point to make her one ahead. I told Belle to keep back, but it turned out the score had gone the other way. Great fighting and spirit from Belle. Rossi also gave a great performance today, fighting two opponents that he kept back with his kicks and scored defensive side kicks to reach the final. The final was a great bout with both fighters wrestling for dominance and trying to out time and out maneuver each other. It went to extra time with teh same result. Eventually Rossi's opponent managed to get a punch in  and that settled it. Awesome work Rossi. Ellis used her reverse punch and leg blocking to make it to the final and was fighting a very strong fighter. She scored once again with her reverse punch, but had to settle for 2nd this time. Nicolle has shown her great timing and movement has improved even more when she won the Intermediate section after a 3 round final. She then entered the lasies advanced and fought someone who towered over her. The plan was to pull her kick out and tehn drive the reverse punch to score. This worked well and it was a very close fight. Nicolle missed a coupel of shots and got caught, which gave her silver. Maggie also fought her heart out in the semi finals. The bout ended 22-18 to her opponent, but the main thing was that Maggie score 17 of those with her hands!! A good standard of vets was here today. Andy reached the semi finals and had a tough bout  settling for 3rd. Rory made the final and tit for tat fight ensued with Rory pulling his opponents techniques out. the fight went to extra time and his opponent managed to get slightl ahead which settled the fight. Charlotte 3rd x2 Belle 3rd Ellis 2nd Robbie 2ndMaggie 3rdNicolle 1st and 3rdRory 2ndAndy 3rd.Once again some great fighting from the team. Many members moving up into higher and heavier/older categories and making an impact.Well done team!

  • WAKO British Championships
    Results from British Championships today.Maggie. 3rdRobbie 3rdCharlotte 2nd, 3rdGeorge 2ndAndy 3rdRob 2nd, 3rdRory. 3rdPaige 3rd, 3rd.Not forgetting Adam S. Who had some great fights in the senior categories and scored some lovely points.A high level there today. Some great fights from the team. One of those days where we all performed well and really raised their standard, but the gold eluded us.  Vets were on fire with Rory, Andy and Rob pushing hard and using their tactics and timing to great effect. Rob suffered a setback to his bid for the championship when he caught an elbow and broke his nose. He carried on fighting though and was eventually stopped by the ref for bleeding.  He then fought in the final, of the next section, but was too injured to make it a gold.  Paige also had great fights and moved up to the  advanced ladies for experience today gaining 3rd in both her categories. George had a few problems today being ill and having a broken finger. He had a very close fight in the open weight and lost narrowly in sudden death, but started to get his timing in. He then reached the final of the - 84kg  and once again was unlucky not to take the gold in a very close competition.  Kids were on fire today. Charlotte lost in sudden death after a great spirited perfomance, Maggie too, stepped up a section and had a close fight, but had to settle  for 3rd today.   Videos Andy v Darrell George Maggie   More on our facebook page:  BKOFACEBOOK   Awesome work team BKO.
